Use Photoshop as an interactive, real-time photo lab. This course will emphasize layer-based fine-tuning of tone and color, retouching, sharpening and the development of an individualized workflow.
Digital Imaging II will take students from basic Photoshop users to in-depth power users who will be able to leverage advanced tools in Photoshop. Learn how to adjust your color, interface, and performance settings to get the best out of your images and the most out of Photoshop. Explore the power of Smart Objects, Shadows/Highlights, and Curves tools for making subtle, nondestructive adjustments. The course dives into Camera Raw to experiment with the editing toolset there, and returns to Photoshop to discuss toning, selections with Quick Mask, Color Range, and Refine Edge commands. Not only will you learn what the tools and options are, but when and why to use them.
